What to Look Out for When Buying Ford Bronco Bike Racks?
Type of Bike Rack
Bike racks can either be roof mounted, trunk-mounted, or hitch-mounted. Each of these types of bike racks has its pros and cons. For instance, If you'd like to access your Bronco's bed and rear more often, you should opt for a roof-mounted rack. But you'd have to deal with tree branches and drive-through spots. The roof bike racks are also grouped into upright and fork roof bike racks, with the upright being the most popular.
The trunk-mounted and hitch-mounted racks also work great if you don't want the bike sitting on top of your Bronco. However, the hitch-mounted racks may not be ideal for carrying more than one bike as these bikes may increase your SUV's length. There may also be bike damage as the bikes come in contact with each other and the ground.
How many bikes do you want to carry? What's the bike's weight compared to the rack's weight limit? Do you need adapters to attach your bikes to the rack? Answering these questions will help you choose the right bike rack to suit your needs without drilling a hole into your pocket.
When you're not planning on taking your bikes for a ride anytime soon, it's only natural to remove the racks. If this is the case, then the racks must be easy to swap out. Swappability is also important if you use your roof racks to haul other items like kayaks, boxes, etc. Most bike racks on the market require a pre-existing roof rack on your Bronco before you can install it, as it makes swapping out easier.
An occasional bike ride for someone who drives every day is a great form of exercise. And it's even more fun riding with the family. We hope you’ve found a suitable bike rack for your next trip.
